Looking around for the best antivirus security software for my new win 7 ultimate 64-bit system.

Norton 360 is an obvious choice but can be quite memory greedy.

I've also heard good stuff about Avira but don't know if they support this system yet.

Any Gurus out there with any good sugestions?

Many Thanks

If I were you I'd go for Avast! Home.

I was an AVG Free user for a long time, but recently, I made the move to Avast! Home 4.6.

See why: http://www.x64bit.net/site/board/index.php...amp;hl=

Free Protection:

Avast Home Edition 4.6


Avast Home Edition 4.6 is free and sports a slick media-player style interface, but its performance scores were bottom-of-the-barrel. Rather than adopting the standard console window used by the other antivirus products, Avast's looks like an oddly shaped orb, which you can customize with colorful skins.


If you want a paid thing, based on the reviews I've seen, these are the best Win7 compatible AVs:



Kaspersky Lab's latest antivirus software protects you from malicious software of any kind. Also included in the top-notch Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2010 is a virtual keyboard to protect you from password stealing programs, as well as new Kaspersky URL Advisor to warn you from bogus sites so that you can surf worry-free. Its intelligent virus scanning adapts its speed depending on the free computing resources, and ensure your IM and email communication are free of infections. Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2010 costs $59.95 for up to three PC's.For 20 $ more (base price) you can get the ultimate real-time protection Kaspersky Internet Security 2010 which extends Kaspersky 's Anti-Virus 2010 with parental control, application sand-boxing ("Kaspersky Safe Run"), Auto-Run Disable and much more.
